Railway and Tramway Ambulance Corps. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 17 February 1894
Railway and Tramway Am bulance Corps. At the Mechanics' Institute, East Maitland, laat evening, the certificates gained by the members of the Railway and Tramway Ambulance Corps in that town were distributed to the successful members. We may mention that the object of the corps is to afford first aid to the injured, and for the purpose of instructing tho members of it to render that aid with tha most primitive means at their command. Mr. A. Lovett, the energetic stationmaster at East Maitland, who wears the silver medal of the corps, showing that he has passed the second year's examination, started a class in East Maitland, among the railway employes under him, in May laat, and so well did they attend to the instruation of their teacher that all of them pa6sed the exami nation in November last, before the Surgeon Instructor, Dr. Woodward, which entitled them to the certificate of the corps. The movement, which it is needless to say is a most useful one, is spread ing rapidly among t...
THE LATE MINSTREL ENTERTAINMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 17 February 1894
THE LATE MINSTREL ENTERTAINMENT Sir,— Kindly allow me a small space in your valuable columns to explain a few items in con nection with your report of our late entertainment which, though not strictly incorrect, are a little misleading to the public in general. In the first place your reporter states that the young boys in tha gallery were responsible for the disorder in question ; but such is not the case. Had t-.ha vonnrtnr hppn in the callerv he would have at once recognised the ringleaders, not as boys, but yming (so-called) men,' Rome of them Government offiniois and othfcr3 in responsible positions, who should have known better and set an example to the younger members of the audience. These,_ Mr. Editor, were the cause of the disorderly proceedings. ' Again we learn from those in charge of the doors that no one was admitted without payment; and it would have been a hard matter to attempt to discriminate between the orderly and unruly members of that audience when entering. I ...
GLOUCESTER ELECTORATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 17 February 1894
GLOUCESTER ELECTORATE. Sir, — Would you kindly permit me to correct an error that occurs in the otherwise very excellent synopsis furnished by your Miller's Forest corres pondent in Wednesday's Mercury of my address at that place on Monday. The report says, ' He was in favour of additional taxation.' What I said was tbat I was not in favour of any additional twation, that the producers oi uie country were already over-taxed, that the present revenue was a great deal more than was necessary for the economical administration of the affairs of the country, and that I would insist on a large teduc tion of the taxation at present imposed on the people. — Youw, etc., HENRY COURTNEY. Raymond Terrace, Feb. 16, 1894.

BRANKTOW. POLITICAL. Mr. Wm. Burnett, of South Singleton, delivered a political address in the School of Arts last night. Mr. J. Y. Tulloch, who was elected Chairman by the meeting, briefly introduced the speaker who, he felt sure might rely upon securing a fair and impartial hearing on this or any other occasion, whether his views coincided with those of his audience or not. Tnere was a large attendance, Greta, Elderslie, and other portions of the eleoto rate being well represented. The candidate met with a cordial and most flattering reception. His address, which lasted for nearly an hour, was listened to most attentively and frequently applauded. He gave his reasons for opposing Mr. A. J. Gould, a gentleman who had hitherto received his hearty support, not because he came up to hi3 ideal, but simply because of those who had offered their services he was perhaps the best. The time had now arrived when a radical changa was absolutely necessary and profitable em ployment found for t...

Coonamble District. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 17 February 1894
Coonamble District. [By Rambler.] A storm ot great violence passed over this dis trict on Sunday afternoon last, 11th instant. At Gunyelah (Billeroy), where your correspondent happened to be at the time, it blew a perfect hurri cane, unroofing bark tenements, beating under the eaves and deluging rooms, tearing off limbs from the trees, and even uprooting the trees themselves. It is estimated that fully three inches of rain fell at Gunyelah and Billeroy, while about two inches fell at Holyrood (Mr. Juchan's). The storm slackened in pace and force as if moved in a north easterly direction. As a matter of course, the country is immensely benefitted by this timely downpour. Indeed, a complete metamorphosis has come over the entire scene. The recent brown and barren waste has given place to a stretch of verdant fertility, which has dissipated all fear for the flocks and herds, and kindled, I trust, a spirit of universal gratitude to the ' Giver of every good and perfect gift.' A sad fata...
